We went on a week night so the restaurant was very quiet. The place is modern, clean and simple, nice place. There was only one waiter and he was really nice and pleasant. The presentation of the food was good and I can feel that the chef has put lots of effort. However I found the food was on salty... More

Make sure you dine here- the food is simply amazing - we have been diners here for a few years now and the husband and wife ream make this a truly wonderful dinner experience. The space is tight but there is a pleasant atmosphere and the service is excellent - on the pricy side for really smaller plates but every... More

My only question is - why do we not come here more often? Food - a sublime meal, starting wth the unique Lobster Cappucino. My wife had the Pork Belly, while I had the Scallops... both superb as were the dessert and cheese. Service was unobtrusive but spot on. When someone at the next table knocked over their water glass... More

Not only is the food outstanding, but the service is amazing. The wine list is out of this world. Simple décor but extremely sophisticated. Save your pennies and enjoy a night at The Pear Tree. It is absolutely worth your money.

We have been patrons of The Pear Tree since it opened in 1998. This intimate restaurant is run by a married couple: Chef Scott Jaeger, a former competitor and coach for Canada in the vaunted Bocuse d'Or competition in France, offers nonpareil cuisine while wife Stephanie runs the front of house with almost magical smoothness. And her wine pairings are... More

We did there 5-course Tasting Menu paired with wine and it was simply delicious! Every course was unique and excellent! My husband does not like fish and he even loved the fish course! The timing of the courses was perfect: we never felt rushed or like we were waiting either. The wine pairings were spot on, and the service very... More

A small unassuming restaurant, but definitely the best meals I've ever had. If you're a foodie, you won't be disappointed with any of the meals at this restaurant. Innovative, exquisite appetizers, mains, and desserts. The husband and wife team (the chef and the hostess) could not be more hospitable. Fabulous wine selection. Cozy, intimate atmosphere. This is where all the... More

My long awaited and delayed birthday present from 2013 was fulfilled last week. I had a wonderful meal with my wife at this intimate restaurant. The service was outstanding, unrushed and personal. The meal was exquisite. Entree of Witloof salad played off the bitter and sweet with pears and endive, with aged Gouda providing the depth of flavor. My entree... More

We've been to The Pear Tree several times with friends and it never fails to impress. Wonderful presentation, excellent service combined with an unequalled wine list makes this a "must visit". Everyone I have recommended to The Pear Tree has been pleased.
